‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Spinoff Loses Directors, Split Caused By ‘Creative Differences’
Lucasfilm Ltd. announced that they will be producing a “Star Wars” spinoff film starring Han Solo. The production was kicked off with the announcement of the cast. However, the film directors reportedly left the production over irreconcilable reasons.
It has just been revealed that directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have left the production this month. The two worked on the untitled Han Solo film when the filming began in January this year. The film has already started its principal photography in February and the movie is expected to release on May 25 next year. They are well-known as a dynamic duo that has worked on various successful and popular film projects.
Lord and Miller’s unexpected departure came as a shock for fans since the production was going so well since it started. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy released an official statement regarding this matter. She has confirmed that the two filmmakers have indeed left the film because it has become clear that they had different visions for the film. She added that a new director to fill in the vacancy will be announced soon. Lucasfilm, Lord, and Miller have jointly announced their intent to part ways.
Meanwhile, the cast and the rest of the crew remain as is. The untitled solo film will star Aiden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo. He will be joined by a stellar principal cast that is composed of Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller, Donald Glover, and Joonas Suotamo. The said standalone movie follows “Rogue One” as the second installment in the “Star Wars Anthology” and it will portray a story filled with adventures of Han Solo and his old time partner Chewbacca. The film will be set in a space Western and the young Han Solo will meet Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, and Lando Calrissian.
